Lasting Convictions On Your Criminal Record
If you are convicted of an Aggravated Felony DUI DWI, it will stay on your criminal record forever and can be used against you in future cases. It will be considered a “prior felony conviction” in most circumstances, and used to enhance any penalties that you will be facing on subsequent felony charges, DUI or otherwise.
